📝 Anfield Energy Files its Preliminary Economic Assessment for its Velvet-Wood and Slick Rock Uranium and Vanadium Projects
The PEA indicates: 1) a pre-tax project internal rate of return (“IRR”) of 40% and a net present value (“NPV”) of US$238 million; and 2) a post-tax IRR of 33% and an NPV of $197 million, based on a discount rate of 8% and a uranium price of US$70 per pound, along with a vanadium price of US$12 per pound.
Total weighted-average Direct OPEX (i.e., between Velvet-Wood and Slick Rock) estimated at US$244 per ton of mined and processed material.
The total cost to produce saleable uranium and vanadium products (i.e. Direct OPEX per ton plus CAPEX per ton) is US$290 per ton, compared to an estimated gross value of US$741 per ton (based on a uranium price of US$70 per pound and a vanadium price of US$12 per pound).
Average annual production of approximately 750,000 pounds of uranium and 2.5 million pounds of vanadium per year is estimated over the 15-year mine life.
📝 F3 Hits 16.1% U3O8 over 3.0m within 4.6% over 12.5m in 75m Step-out from A1 Discovery
F3 Uraniumannounce final results from the 9 remaining drill holes of the 21 hole Winter 2023 program, including drill hole PLN23-061, drilled at the JR Zone on the Patterson Lake North (PLN) property. The analysis for PLN23-061, cored 75m grid south from the discovery hole, returned one continuous 12.5m interval averaging 4.6% U3O8, including a high-grade 5.0m interval averaging 10.9% U3O8, which further includes a 3.0m interval which assayed 16.1% U3O8.
Planning is in progress for a $12M summer exploration program, scheduled to commence early June, to continue JR Zone expansion, in addition to exploration along the A1 Main Shear Zone where previous drilling in 2014 and 2019 intersected the same structure as what is interpreted to be hosting the JR Zone. The work permits for the program have been received from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment.
Final assay results from 7 mineralized drill holes are disclosed below in Table 1, including drill holes PLN23-053 through PLN23-059, and drill holes PLN23-061 and PLN23-062.
